Hari Prakash Karcherla: We stress a lot on Emotional and Spiritual Quotient.

We have been having sessions almost every day for 30 years. These are called Happiness and Joy sessions and include Yoga and meditation. We also have Marketing clubs, HR clubs etc.
Careers360: Please tell us about Global Immersions and Entrepreneurial Management.
Hari Prakash Karcherla: One of the important things we have seen from our small family of alumni is that they are becoming successful entrepreneurs.

So, students have the opportunity to work one day in a week specifically on entrepreneurship skills.
Careers360: What kind of students should be choosing GIBS?
Hari Prakash Karcherla: We are a young business school but the quality of the students we have got over the last few years is very good. We welcome students from any background. I can say for sure that the values they will get here would be promising enough. Our preferred student would be middle class and who would grab a good placement.
Careers360: Please share some advice for B-school aspirants.
Hari Prakash Karcherla: CAT is a good test for assessment but the result does not show who they are. So much more lies beyond the CAT results and it is not the end of opportunities. Institutes like GIBS and many more with good intent aim at providing good business education.

Hi Sb !
Actually none of these is good colleges. But if you only want join from any of these colleges, then GIBS would be nice.
Let's talk about it
An average place to study, unique infrastructure. According to the reviews which are on internet it seems that it is a very good college to join.
GIBS Business School has a "Placement Panel" whose head is Mrs. Uzma Nayeem (Renowned Image Consultant) and the members of the panels are all the CEOs of companies in bangalore. GIBS even has a placement advisory board working for the national and international placements. Every Saturday they have a Guest Lecture from one the members of the panel and a session from Mrs. Uzma Nayeem to shape up your personalities into corporate person. So, placements are sure provided student actively participates and attends all the sessions arranged for the placements by the panel.
Average:- 6 - 8 lakhs
Highest:- 11.30 lakhs
I found GIBS Business School in the Internet. Beautiful infrastructure, with all world class amenities. They have an Unique TRIO combination of MBA + PGPM along with SAP, SIX SIGMA and Project Management Program (one of the most required and appreciated certification world wide) and many more value added courses and certifications.
Please upvote if this was helpful to you.
Hope this helps.
How is GIBS bangalore for doing MBA? What is it average placement is it really worth?
GIBS Bangalore is a good option for pursuing MBA or PGDM and the best part is that they are offering dual specialization also. Their average package is 4-5 lakhs per annum. They are having seperate placement panel which will help Gibians to enhance their personality in corporate world. It will be absolutely worth if you join for any course in GIBS.
Hope this helped you.
